The suave understated elegance of the Aston Martin DB5 as
shown in it’s 1960’s James Bond film debut,
a marked contrast to the functional styling of the Morris Minor
Traveller with wooden struts and painted in teal blue.
The British Aerial Nomad all-terrain buggy, fun, speed and power
safely encased in a bright orange roll cage,
the versatility and resilience of the internationally renowned Land
Rover Defender, the design unchanged despite it’s age.
The iconic curving design of Jaguar’s E type is based on a model
that won the Le Man’s 24 hour endurance race,
in scarlet red with silver spoke wheels, the large reliable engine
meant that that the other cars were gradually outpaced.
The excitement of the World Rally Championships where fast
driving reactions and excellent map reading’s a must,
the skill of driving on dirt tracks around Kielder Forest, a slide
around a sharp corner leaving a cloud of dust.
Lined up on the starting grid waiting for the five red lights to
extinguish, the competition and glamour of Formula One,
the buildings of the Abu Dhabi’s marina course are transformed by
purple and blue lights when the desert sun goes down.
In the early days of motor racing, open topped cars challenged each
other on the steep curves of Brookland’s race track,
a rocket shaped Napier Railton in the lead, closely followed by an
Aston Martin, Alvis, Lagonda and a Bugatti at the back.
The Ford Mustang, a distinctive American classic with a galloping
horse logo and the bonnet’s bold white stripes,
a popular film star’s car in the ’60’s for it’s contemporary styling
and the V8 engine’s noise from it’s exhaust pipe.
Whenever I hear the powerful bass note of a sports car or see
a pristine restored car of yesteryear,
this reminds me of your love of old and new cars, racing and everyday,
and brings you ever closer, brings you ever near.
